Fun Cards

This week over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown the challenge was to use 3 brads.  I use them on my branches to hold my ornaments.  The papers are October Afternoon: Holiday Style.  I cut the branches out from my Cricut and used twine for my string. 
 I added some pop dots to the ornaments and some Stickles for some bling.

Below I combined two challenges.  At Stampin' Sisters in Christ the challenge was tear papers on a card.  The Sketchbook Saturday Challenge was to use this sketch for a card. I didn't like how the paper looked in front of the strip, so I put mine behind the top strip.  For this card I used MME: Stella & Rose papers and a G Studio stamp.


The next card I scraplifted from a member at the Let's Scrap site.  She had made a card from the left side of this sketch.  It was so cute, I had to try it for myself.  Mine kind of turned out looking like a Lego card, but it is still OK.

I used my new Cuttlebug to emboss the squares and a Martha Stuart butterfly punch. My papers are from the 6x6 pad from Simple Stories: Summer Fresh.

Thanks for stopping by......
Have a blessed day!
